commissioner cohen and members of the public. since then we have met with sfmta staff. we've offered support to the sfmta for potential prop k allocation to further project development of these projects. there are $7.3 million in prop k funds and tap funding strategy development will be focus of prop k strategic plan. we plan to start in early 2013. we also continue to work with the sfmta to identify additional funding for pet projects since since -- including the none eir improvement. the condition we included the action, priority for receiving any additional prop double a funds in the transit reliability category in the current five year period and also first priority for programming in the transit category in the next prop double a strategic update. you can find more information on all of these projects in the enclosure that i mentioned. final i want to note we made several small revisions to the policies and prioritization criteria. these are attachments three and four. the more substantial change consist clarifying consequences that requires project implementation to occur within 12 mon
of bicycle parking. this is again an example that the department worked closely with sfmta to create really simple diagrams that depict these requirements. an example here is showing the required distance between racks and also the distance to a curb or wall. another incentive offered is a line conversion of auto parking to bike parking. existing bike parking requirements also allow such conversion, for class 1 parking is required. however, this provision in the code does not specify any details and therefore remains unclear and really hard to implement. our proposal would provide specific ratios to convert an auto parking to class 1 or class 2 bicycle parking spaces and at minimum, each auto parking space can be replaced with seven bike parking spaces of any combination. existing buildings also could voluntarily convert their auto parking space to bike parking and i want to highlight that this is -- this requirement would just allow project sponsor and property owners to convert auto parking to bicycle parking and they are not mandating such conversion. also there is a provision for an
to acknowledge sfmta, who is here, if you have any questions. bicycle ridership has significantly increased in san francisco over the past few years. sfmta's annual count shows ridership has more than doubled since 2006. this report also estimated over 75,000 daily bike commutes in san francisco. with all of that ridership, the city has only 3,000 bike racks on the sidewalks. it requires better infrastructure, including bicycle parking. the san francisco bike plan was adopted in 2009, a collaboration between board of mta and the planning department. san francisco bike plan is an implementation arm for our general plan and this calls for plentiful and high-quality parking as one ever of its goals. first adopted in 1996 and at that time the requirements were only applied to city-owned and leased buildings. the requirements were expanded on basis to city-owned and privately-owned garages in 1998 and to commercial and industrial uses in 2001 and residential uses in 2005 and hotel uses most recently in 2012. now i'm going to look at how our proposal would update the requirements. this proposal
